region are greatly affected by assad's brutal campaign, so we will continue to coordinate closely with our partners moving forward as we have in the past. >> u.s. boots on the ground right next to a war zone -- is this an escalation? >> it is not an escalation. it is working with a partner to deal with the impacts of assad's brutality. >> as you know, many of the administration's critics would like to see a more active role by these troops. >> our position on providing military legal assistance has not changed. it is our position that what is needed in syria is not more weapons. what is needed is a political transition. you note critics who seem to support taking some sort of harder, more militaristic line, but they will not come forward and draw any real distinctions from what they are proposing compared to what the president is doing. if someone in congress or elsewhere wants to suggest that the united states should engage militarily directly in syria, they should say so. the president's position is we need to continue to provide and manage humanitarian assistance to the syrian

well. we're looking at a civil war there, we're looking at a dictator, assad, who is murdering his own people. i'm not advocating an all entering that country. we need to monitor the situation. we don't know who the rebels are. there are indications that it could be al qaeda. we need to be very, very careful. but i would suggest, again, leadership by this administration in trying to pressure russia, where syria is a client state of russia, and have them try to step in with the situation. >> we told you earlier in the debate about the n.e.t. news project and ask the citizens across the state to go to a participating library and record a video with their comments on the issues and questions for the candidate. install record a video and send it to us -- you can still record a video and send it to us. you can also tune in to a one- our voter voices special on friday, october 19, at 7:00 p.m. central to these same candidates will answer more questions from nebraskans. we have one more of voter zero voices question in this debate. it comes from a law student. >> there is a it's a lot of disc
